A family has been helped out by Kendal Mountain Rescue Team after getting lost in the Lake District.
They had climbed Gummer's How, which overlooks Windermere, only to get lost when rain and mist rolled in, leading to them trying to descend northwards rather than to the south from where they had come.
Members of the Kendal team had to provide them with dry clothing as they were not wearing waterproofs
, as well as giving the children chocolate and mint cake.
Gummer's How is a relatively low hill compared with the mountains further north in the national park, but the incident may emphasise why it is important to have Ordnance Survey maps
and a compass, as well as the right winter clothing for a walk at this time of year.
One couple in difficulty in the Peak District recently made use of their map in an unorthodox way, setting fire to it in order to guide a helicopter to their position in the dark.
The rescue on Kinder Scout was attended by the Buxton and Edale Mountain Rescue Teams.
